group therapy, supporting each other

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) at Transitions Counseling offers a focused course of treatment that leads to rapid mental health recovery. In terms of hours of therapy, attending an IOP is similar to 1 year’s worth of hours of individual therapy. It’s meant to help speed recovery when you can’t wait a year to start feeling better.

The twelve week program focuses on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, includes group therapy sessions, and offers a parent group that teaches support strategies. During the program, individual counseling sessions may also be recommended.

Focuses on CBT & DBT

CBT is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on examining the patterns of thinking and behavior that contribute to problems in a person’s life. DBT is a structured treatment that focuses on teaching individuals skills to effectively manage their emotions and behaviors, cope with stress, and improve relationships with others. 

Includes Group Therapy

Group therapy sessions take place three times per week for a total of about twelve weeks. Despite the fact that most people naturally feel nervous about the prospect of group-based treatments, most people find that they actually prefer groups after trying them out. For more information, see our Group Therapy page. 

Offers a Weekly Group for Parents

We offer a weekly group for parents so that they can also learn the skills being introduced in treatment to help support their child in practicing these skills outside formal appointments. Our weekly parent group is also an opportunity for parents to receive support themselves during this process.
